Forkin' Frisco: Dodging the fog whilst dining in the Richmond
The Richmond district, only a quick bus trip from SF State, is a quiet residential neighborhood peppered with a few major commercial boulevards that are home to a variety of restaurants. You can find everything from Korean food to Greek in this laid back hood. Though the weather is almost always dull and foggy, the food is lively and vibrant.

Crepe cafes may be a dime a dozen, but Genki sets itself apart with quality ingredients (everything from ice cream to fresh fruit) and value for the price. Not to mention the fact that their crepes are about the size of your head.
50 Clement St.
The nondescript diner exterior and disarming name hide a truly good breakfast and brunch joint. Eats serves up rib-sticking classics like chicken and waffles and eggs benedict along with more unique items like bacon-studded waffles.
126 Clement St.
What is it about French food that is so romantic? Maybe we just like to pretend we are dining in the most romantic city on earth (Paris) while enjoying a plate of foie gras. Whatever the reason, this restaurant is sure to deliver a memorable romantic dinner.
